Trans-Pecos Texas, A Study of Exploration
by J. P. Burnett


Originally published as a masterís thesis, Trans-Pecos Texas, A Study of Exploration offers any student of Texas history a clear and concise chronology of the exploration of the rugged and vast areas of west Texas. J.P. Burnett was born in Rising Star, Texas and spent most of his years teaching Texas History when not prowling the canyons and washes of his native state. His writing style is easy and unaffected. The Pecos River posed a great challenge to westward progress because of its rugged and deep canyons. From the Gaspar Castano de Sosa Exposition of 1590 to the early survey work of Van Horn, there are maps as well as anecdotes describing the challenges, failures, forts and follies of early explorers. Basic geology of the region, native peoples, camels, conflicts and springs are all discussed along with the later arrival of stage ways, railways and the evolution of the modern trans-Pecos region. Bibliography offers great opportunities for further study. Limited number of editions available.
